Mesoestetic Skin Peels

Did you know that chemical peels are often used on the body and not just the face? Skinnotion offers a range of skin peels to suit all ages and concerns, many of which are ideally suited to addressing pigmentation on the body. Our Mesoestetic chemical peel treatments range from very mild introductory peels to advanced peels, targeting pigmentation on the neck, chest, and even the backs of the hands.

What Are Chemical Peels?

There are many varieties of chemical peels, all comprising different ingredients, differing strengths, and catering to different skin concerns. During your peel treatment, a chemical solution containing chemical exfoliating ingredients like Phenol, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids (AHA or BHA) is applied to the skin. Different types of acids have different responses in the skin, for example, some work particularly well on pigmentation, while others reduce oiliness and pore blockages. Others are designed to work specifically on pigmentation, fading existing pigmentation deposits in the tissue while also helping to prevent the formation of new pigment. A mild chemical peel can also be used to enhance the results of other cosmetic procedures you may be receiving to treat your pigment.

Am I Suited To Chemical
Peels?

Our wide selection of Mesoestetic peels cater to a broad range of skin types and concerns, whether you are new to skincare or an advanced user of skincare products and clinical treatments. Our experienced Skinnotion nurses will work closely with you to create a skin treatment regime and peel recommendations that suit your needs and the area you wish to treat.

What Do I Do Before A Skin Peel?

Any pre-treatment preparation of the skin will depend on the type of peel you receive. If you have received little to no chemical peels before, you won’t need to prepare for your visit, as we will always begin with a very mild peel so as not to aggravate or sensitise the skin. Peels require a gentle approach, with regular visits during which the strength of the peel progresses with time. As the strength and type of skin peel advanced from introductory to advanced, you will need to be caring for your skin with specific skincare products at home. This reduces the risks of adverse reactions, such as post- inflammatory hyperpigmentation, after a strong peel. We always recommend avoiding sun exposure, waxing, hair removal, laser or IPL treatments, or any other sensitising service within 7 days of a peel. Also avoid use of vitamin A products or exfoliants 48 hours prior.

Are Chemical Peels Painful?

Introductory peels are mild, and never painful. You may experience some tingling or itching as your skin pH changes – this is very normal. Other than this temporary sensation, there should be no discomfort. Stronger and more advanced peel solutions may feel hot and sometimes uncomfortable while they are on the skin, depending on their ingredients and desired outcomes. This will subside after its removal.

What Happens After A Skin Peel?

This will again depend on the type of peel, and the area it is applied to. Very mild peels typically have no lasting effects on the skin. Some may experience some mild warmth and pinkness on the skin for a matter of minutes or hours. Advanced peels may remain red and sensitised for several days, and include some sloughing or shedding of the skin around 5-10 days post-peel. It’s always a good idea to pre-plan your peel treatments around your work and social commitments to ensure your skin has completed its healing phase before any special occasions. It is imperative to wear broad spectrum SPF50+ protection daily after your peel. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24 hours, and active, exfoliating skincare products avoided for 3-14 days afterwards depending on the peel type.
